cannot adequately express our sense of loss. darryl scott's daughter rachel was one of the 13 victims of the bine boin victims in april 20th, 1999. >> darryl, i appreciate you being here. it causes you to relive painful moments 13 years ago. i want to begin bying what that moment was like when you realized that rachel, your daughter was one of the victims in the columbine shooting? i think the first thing that happens, you experience such a shock and there is it a certain amount of disbelief. i kept expecting her to walk through the door and expecting to see her and it took a while for it to hit dead center that she was gone. that happens a lot with parents who don't expect to lose your child. you never expect it to happen. it was a nightmare. nyou know, the toughest thing to what to say to the parents. if you be in their homes tonight and sit across from them and what would you say that comes fro people in the country who can say i do know how you feel in >> they don't need me. they need their friend family. but if i was in the swadings, i would put my arm athem and cry with them. th
, remembering two environmental champion, john muir and rachel carson. all straight ahead on a second look. good evening and a welcome, i am julie haner. tonight we remember two environmentalist, and rachel carson's book silent spring and john muir bfs book's book the yosemite and wat an watson brought us this history in 2000 of yosemite. >> molding and carving yosemite. the signature on this sculpture was written by a 60 long glacier that chisels its way leaving yosemite valley in its wake. half dome, and all this right here in this small valley is almost too much to take in. it is enormous and about the size of the state of rhode island. almost 4 million people visited last year and you might be tempted to ask are we loving yosemite to death? greedy ravages of man have been the big threat. >> what we have here in yosemite, we have the best of the best and the worst of the wours. we have the scenery and the water falls and 800 miles of hiking trails. but we have hoards and hoards of people coming. so i think john muir never advocated keeping people out. >> the limits of transportation kept peop
presidents and that is andrew jackson. now, jackson's wife, her name was rachel donaldson and when rachel donaldson was a young teenager her father was a colonel, settled what we now know today is knoxville, settled hennessee and colonel donaldson took a group of white settlers and half the territory out in the woods and fought indians in that sort of stuff. in the settlement, rachel, his daughter sort of became a debbie taunt, the daughter of the most prominent man in the tennessee region. young rachel is a bit controversial because she does what a proper girl ought not to do. against her parents wishes she runs away and marries an older man is a ne'er-do-well. his name is luis robards and if it fears -- appears robards might've been physically abusive with her and he loses one thing after another but he accuses her of all sorts of things and at the least was very abusive toward her. so this is a big scandal. she does what a proper girl ought not to do a second time. she leaves robards and goes back home. couple of things happen. women legally could could not divorce so she has to ask ro
as ecstasy. >> some part of you is on guard. it just wouldn't stop, couldn't shut it down. >> for rachel hope the mental agony began in childhood, when she says she was abused and raped. for a grown-up, a familiar smell would bring it all back. >> i would get very extreme stabbing sensations in my body, and like fixed visuals, like being, for instance, raped. >> reporter: mental breakdowns, four times in the hospital. and along the way she tried almost every treatment in the book. >> i tried endr, rapid eye movement therapy, nothing worked. >> reporter: and then she discovered an experiment. run by a psychiatrist in charleston, south carolina. >> this is a place where we do the study, meet with people and do the sessions. >> reporter: intense therapy, including eight-hour sessions after taking a capsule of mdma, of ecstasy. now listen closely on this tape, you can hear rachel with the doctor. >> it felt as if my whole brain was powered up like a christmas tree. all at once? >> sometimes people usually did have very positive affirming experience, but a lot of times it was revisiting the trauma
. rachel was killed in the columbine high school mass cure. darryl, as a parent, all i can think of today is these parents out buying christmas gifts. kids at this age excited about santa claus and christmas is it coming, and now planning a funeral and no christmas or birthdays, how do you recover? you have been through this. >>> well, there is nothing you can tell a parent that lost the child. they need their friends and family. in our case, we made choices. we made the choice not to be angry and better but to celebrate rachel's life and today we have the largest school training programs and reach three million students a year with rachel's challenge and train over 300,000 children and school 500 suicides prevented. a lot of the answers are long term. they are not just a knee jerk reaction or more laws and regulations . but we have to be a kinder nation and take time to listen to one another and be role models in these kids. and you are active and in your healing, am i interperting it right. my son craig was in the library and he came within a split second of being killed. and i would ha
